I only really started to get interested in the techniques of photojournalism when I was at one of the great news organizations for visual journalism, The Santa Fe New Mexican. I won some news page design awards there, but it was really press photographers like Abel Uribe and Craig Fritz who deserve the credit for making it such a gorgeous and at times visually stunning paper. The light in their work was just spectacular. The following piece demystifies the process.
